Always a top day when Serra gets beat and Brands has been peaking for tiebreakers this year...

This.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Machado wins 6-2 6-1

COME ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

What a mental GOAT! Pulling a Federer from 2-6 in the tie break! (also happened in Dubai )
Nice opportunity to pick up some points that will help him avoid qualies. He is too good to play them anyway.

Like Federer in 2 said, it'll be good to pick up some points here so he can avoid qualifying in the future.

Even though it's just Serra who's far from his best shape it's still good to see Brands being so clutch and winning close matches/sets

I really like this Brands guy, he should make it to the quarters and then who knows? Maybe he can trouble Delpo.
